Watch out for the new generation of heavy lift vessels

PES is pleased to bring you a preview of the latest multipurpose vessels: the new R-Class, from Spliethoff, buit in the Zhejiang Ouhua shipyard in China. The ships will be just the ticket for the offshore wind industry.

Amsterdam-based shipping company Spliethoff has placed an order for six multipur-pose vessels at the Zhejiang Ouhua Shipbuilding Co., Ltd., shipyard in China and are looking forward to a long partnership.

Spliethoff is a dry cargo and multi-purpose specialist. It was established in 1921 and over the years has built up an excellent reputation for its high quality standards and for being a reliable, loyal partner.

These new, state of the art, R-Class vessels have been designed to comply with the Polar Code and are therefore highly suitable to trade in remote areas such as the Arctic.

Working for the wind industry means it’s very important to be ecological, both in terms of the environment and emissions. So with this in mind, they will be optimised for fuel efficiency and equipped with scrubbers which will also reduce their environmental footprint to a minimum, and ensure they are ready for SCR and Tier III compliance.
